Dance Odysseys On Stage Studio - New Voices
From five of the most exciting choreographers of the moment; Helen Pickett, James Cousins, Martin Lawrance, Henri Oguike and Kristen McNally come inspiring new works in this programme of world premieres.
California’s Helen Pickett – a former dancer for William Forsythe and now resident Choreographer at Atlanta Ballet – is renowned for energetic yet poetic creations. James Cousins’s contemplative and gripping style has won him the inaugural New Adventures Choreographer Award. Martin Lawrance shares the intense musicality of his mentor Richard Alston and is his talented heir apparent. Royal Ballet Soloist Kristen McNally is an exciting, cutting edge choreographer for whom the term ‘indie ballet’ could have been coined. Henri Oguike, one of the brightest voices of British contemporary dance, takes on a new commission with Scottish Dance Theatre, promising fierce precision in this world premiere.
